GREENWICH, Conn. -- Lisa Wynne Salvatore, a Greenwich-based health and wellness practitioner, was recently appointed as Alternative Health Care Advisor in wound and foot care for the world-renowned animal welfare organization Wildlife SOS.
“I am honored and delighted to be able to help these animals in any way I can because we are their voice,” said Salvatore, an ardent long-time supporter and fundraiser for the international nonprofit registered in India, the U.S. and U.K.
Since 1995, Wildlife SOS has been at the forefront of the international movement to protect India’s wildlife from habitat loss and human exploitation. Saving and rehabilitating India’s circus, temple and begging elephants at its 40-acre sanctuary, SOS Elephant Conservation Care Center in Mathura, India is just one arm of the organization’s work.
In 2009, Wildlife SOS, in concert with the Indian government and international animal conservation and rescue groups, put an end to the cruel 400-year old practice of India’s dancing bears.
Salvatore has spent much of her career dedicated to the creation of cruelty free, customized, organically crafted and naturally preserved skin products.
Salvatore's appointment as Alternative Health Care Advisor means that all elephants rescued by Wildlife SOS are now treated directly and effectively with her own highly acclaimed, proprietary blends of herbal and aromatherapy healing oils.
“Lisa helps Wildlife SOS is so many ways, with fundraising and awareness and especially with the wound care for our elephants,” said Nikki Sharp, executive director of Wildlife SOS USA. “Our rescued elephants have major issues when they come to us and need help with diet, nutrition and overall health care.”
As a health and wellness practitioner for more than 35 years and a certified Mindfulness and Meditation teacher, Salvatore offers her clients a wide array of interdisciplinary holistic services that include aesthetics, nutritional counseling, massage therapy and meditation and mindfulness instruction.
She is the creator of a revolutionary organic deodorant product called Pure PitzTM, cultivated organically, never tested on animals, and preserved naturally without the use of harmful chemicals and synthetics.
Salvatore has also been actively involved in animal therapy programs for both Kids in Crisis as well as Greenwich Boys and Girls Club. For more information visit www.lisawynnesalvatore.com.
